Re: Other flapping prefixes. Compare and contrast.

I disagree with your position completely Mike.  None of what is below
is what I would consider "bashing".  Instead, it is a straightforward
and honest display of what is breaking large parts of the Internet
with a request that it be solved.  I consider it highly constructive.
It is absolutely ridiculous that there are providers that still flap
routes, especially one the size of PSI, for dialup customers.

Can we stop this bashing right here, Sean? I don't believe that this list 
is the adequate forum four such childish behaviour. I have a collection 
of your past emails and I am rather fed up withthis. 

Can Sean be removed from the list? These are not contributions in any 
sense of constructivity at all.

Sprint can very well chose a different person to make their corporate 
views known on an nanog scale.Mike

There were several other providers who got notes from
me about prefixes that were flapping every several seconds
or thereabouts.   The tally so far:

Polite "we have a ticket open and will get someone to fix
things" from three providers (thanks ANS, BBN, EBONE).

A trio of no-answer-yets, one of which has since been
fixed, one of which will be fixed since I have the
advantage of sharing a room with the routing guru
of the NSP in question and the bigger advantage of
not needing nearly as much sleep. :-)

The third no-answer-yet is from a smaller provider in
Europe, and I expect they'll get back to me in their morning.

Finally, there was the previous reply.

    Sean.

P.S.: Oh, I also have to thank Pushpendra Mohta of CERFNET
    who replied to an earlier note personally with an
    explanation of what was going on.
